Grenada, West Indies
The inaugural project was the re-establishment of the music program at St. Andrew's RC School in Grenada. Wind and flood from two consecutive hurricanes destroyed all musical instruments at the school. When IFRM member Peter Sotheran (RC of Guisborough and Great Ayton, England) contacted IFRM about the school's needs, the Fellowship responded with a grant to purchase needed instruments and music books. A supplemental IFRM grant, matched by community funds, provided monies for a steel band for the school's music program.
